Vancity Vendor: MJM Wedding Services

MJM Wedding Services Myrna Mason couldn’t get enough of the wedding industry. She was once a wedding photographer but slowly ventured into the world of wedding gowns. She created MJM Wedding Services, a one of a kind home-run bridal boutique. What sets her little shop apart is that it caters to brides on a budget and provides a one-on-one private bridal shopping experience. Myrna works with 1 bride at a time and allows her to bring 4-5 family members to share in the experience. Don’t forget to bring your camera too because unlike other salons, you are allowed to take photos at her shop.

MJM Wedding Services primarily sells off the rack wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, as well as mother of the bride and flower girl dresses. Her wedding gowns are all affordable, priced between $200 and $1,000. Wedding dresses may also be custom-made and ordered for you, as well as rented for those who don’t want to figure out what to do with their dress after the big day. Myrna says her shop doesn’t provide alterations but can refer you to some great tailors she knows. Consider buying both your wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses from Myrna, she might be able to give you a special rate! Myrna only books by appointment so if you’re interested in checking out her little shop, call 604-218-0148 or email jorderic@aol.com. You can also find MJM Wedding Services on Twitter and Facebook, so be a fan!

MJM Wedding Services

A Few Words With Myrna…

MJM Wedding Services What do you have to offer to brides with lower budgets?
“Very well priced gowns and also rentals of almost everything in store as well as offering custom made gowns which can be made and rented.”

Explain the dress rental process… how does it work and how much does it cost? How long does the bride have the dress for?
“Renting depends on the route taken, but for the off the rack dresses, rental cost is usually 50% of the purchase price. The dress can be taken once the rental fee is paid in full.

Explain the ordering process of a custom dress. How much do custom dresses start at?
“Custom dresses can be ordered from the sample styles I have in stock, or we can replicate most styles very closely to the original. Cost is determined by the style and material/beading etc. The ones I have in stock now range from $650 – $899 including taxes.”

MJM Wedding Services If a bride needs a dress in a short period of time (for example, a month), how do you accommodate that?
“I have over 350 off the rack gowns which are available the day she finds the one she loves.”

What do you enjoy most about your job?
“Being part of such a wonderful time in a bride’s life and helping by being a positive and helpful piece of the wedding planning puzzle.”

What one piece of advice would you give to a bride when it’s time to choose a dress?
“To remember that while the dress is important, the marriage is what matters most.”

What one piece of advice would you give to a bride and groom for their wedding?
“I would say to stay calm and communicate very clearly to each other and others what you both want. Staying within a realistic budget is also wise.”

    While this shop sounds great in theory, good luck getting an appointment. There’s at least a one-month wait just to go in to try on dresses.

    Hi there….I appreciate the comment about my business and yes, appt’s can be tough to get….but as for a one month wait….that is mainly for Saturdays during peak season. There are only so many Saturdays available. It is a home based based business which comes after my family. Book early and you will be just fine. Thanks and happy briding!

    Hi Tasha…thank you for your comment but I am unsure of what you are referring to. I certainly would like to discuss it directly. I treat every one of my brides with the utmost respect and am most certainly never rude unless warranted.
